What was the most important thing(s) you learned in BA 101 to help you get where you are today?

Be yourself and be confident in your abilities. Pursue what you are genuinely interested in and know that there is no easy path to success, so be prepared to work hard.

What BBA Career Services resources did you use and how did you utilize these resources to get where you are today?

I used the resume writing services, mock interviews and career coaches to help me better brand myself to potential employers. The skills I learned were invaluable and still carryover to this day as I share them with many undergrads across the country.

How did you make your final choice to accept your job offer?

It came down to four things for me: company mission, opportunities for learning and development, overall compensation package and location.

Give us your best career advice.

Don’t ever settle. Stay curious and open-minded to opportunities and people around you. If you want to achieve something that someone else already has, don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for their help.

I am open to students reaching out to me via LinkedIn for virtual mentorship. I also encourage them to read the contributions I make on Huffington Post.
